Re: Siberian bushing review needed

Before buying the Siberian bushings for the Forester I spoke to a member of the subaruforester forums from Barbados extensively about it. He had nothing but good to say, and i assume he sees a similar use case as mine (mostly road, occasionally unpaved/bad road etc) So far 4 months in with it, handl...

Re: the disc pad thread

How does the Hi-Q compare to the Mintex (red box) and the Wagner quickstop; In terms of stopping power and longevity. I don't care as much about dust. Can't speak for Hi-Q, never used Can say that Mintex definitely has a lot more "bite" than wagner quickstop but dusts about 10x as much ha...

Re: CD3 Accord

Well the filter (in engine bay) is a quick easy change. The in-tank strainer isnt as easy but you already have the pump off, so why not?

Re: Siberian bushing review needed

Well, I never used Siberian on any sort of heavy duty application, but I run whiteline polyurethane on my Hilux Surf and I abuse it on and off road and they hold up well with no noise and good handling. Like i say, the key with poly is greasing it properly, the more grease the better haha

Re: Honda Fit Hybrid

Good car, good fuel economy, just change all fluids, esp the genuine honda dual clutch transmission fluid when you buy it.
Diaz Motors in Duncan Village Sando can sort you out for the sale or the service since they stock the genuine fluids etc

Re: WTK - Y12 front brake upgrade

Akebono sold locally, which may work out a lil cheaper than ordering but I don't know.

I find akebonos last LONG, like serious long if you not in a performance application, so I wouldnt fret too hard about slightly less pad wear material.
Great pads either way

Re: CD3 Accord

Pump in and out should be easy to test with a multimeter and a bredrin.
Can also check by putting on some clear hose on the fuel line to see if the flow is constant while engine running, or if you have bubbles/change in flow

Re: Siberian bushing review needed

Recently used some of their controm arm bushings and sway bar bushings on a SJ forester. Build quality is good and fitment is also very good. Only thing, you NEED to use a lot of grease (i use superlube) to make sure it doesnt squeak, but you may still get a little bit of noise in applications with ...

They have a OEM replacement line (proACT) and a performance line, but both are very very good. Not sure if stop-tech sold loca...

Re: CD3 Accord

Before you change the whole distributor, take apart the distributor you have and see if you can clean up the connections on the igniter. I never actually had a whole F series distrubutor fail, it is usually that the ingiter connections need cleaning etc. Start with the free things before you move on...

Re: Toyota Surfs,Hilux and 4X4s.

I second using "oil based" coolants. I personally run the Valvoline Zerex Asian (red), which is supposed to be compatible with the Toyota coolant if your pocket kinda light like mine.

Did you end up getting the Prado? If so , how it going?

Re: Toyota Surfs,Hilux and 4X4s.

The price seems good, the main cost on these vehicles would be if you have major engine problems. You want to check out the engine properly before buying, if not you talking a BIG budget engine rebuild. You want to make sure the coolant is in good condition (actual coolant and not water, no oil in c...

My mechanic used to swear by regular Np ultra, once it was changed on time. He used it for years in his vehicles and they never had any kinda sluging issues at all.
